This case study provides a timely reminder that pneumonia can cause as much morbidity in younger patients as in older ones, and the list of potential pathogens is considerable. Guidelines for diagnosis and treatment of CAP, as well as differential diagnoses, are discussed. Joint Commission measures, which must be followed to ensure reimbursement, are also outlined.
